Steel types are similar to Rock types in my view, because I think that like how Rock types probably wear suits of rock armor, Steel types wear metal armor. Steel types, by definition, have metallic parts to their bodies and use that metal to their advantage in battle. Magnemite being changed to half Steel type makes sense because it is covered in metal armor. Of course this also means Magenemite could have fleshy parts under all of that. The wiki states that they are one of the best defensive types,

Here's another pair. Let's start with Flying types. Flying types are those Pokemon that are adapted to fly. But they don't just fly. They use flight as a major advantage in the battle for survival. They also use wind as a weapon. As you would imagine, most of these types are bird-like. They have been said by the wiki to have poor defense stats. But considering they are flyers, that has some sense to it. They need to be lighter, aerodynamic. And they are probably up in the air a lot and a good hit
Here are some other types I'd like to do as a pair, since they sort of relate to each other, Ghost and Dark types. Let's start with Ghost types.

Ah, Dragon types. This type would have been named so for their physical resemblance to mythical dragons. I suppose a researcher brought up the similarity and the name stuck. Dragon types are really powerful creatures, and though not every member of an evolutionary line looks like a dragon of any kind (like Goomy) they do eventually look like one, at least for the pure types.
Their only weaknesses used to be other dragons (understandable) and Ice type attacks before the creation of

So when I have been doing these, I try to come up with my own analysis and merely use what's been done in the TV Tropes Pokedex for ideas. Sometimes I agree with a lot of what they have, and often I find things to add. But with this type, I have to admit, there's little to add to what they did for Poison types. Here's the link: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanonPokedex/PoisonType
Seriously, they covered everything very well, even the way Bug types used to counter Poison types.
